Gar - Pointers in Need

About Pointer Gar

Sex: Male        Age: 2 years

Gar is currently in Turkey, is 2 years old and has been neutered

Gar was found in the garbage of İstanbul city all alone 9 months ago, no  humans, no food or water around him shivering from fear and  cold.  Gar was rescued and adopted, he joined 5 other rescue dogs in a loving home.  Unfortunatley, due to personal circumstances all of the rescuers dogs have had to be rehomed.  Gar is a very sensitive soul and has been affected by the split from his sadopter.

Gar is a typical active pointer with a good temperament, good with people and other dogs.  Gar has not been cat tested.  Gar is very timid,  fearful  of barking at other dogs and  crowded  places. He is eating very well but he is not gaining weight and has a thin appearance. Gar needs special care with high quality food and it might be helpful to keep him in a crate after feeding as he is very hyper. He is one of the clever boys who can open the doors. The family  should be very careful on keeping doors locked.

Gar  might be a bit timid when he meets his new family but he will settle if given time. Gar eats very fast so it is advised that his new family feed him with a special bowl that helps eating slowly.  Gar would be a very happy boy if he could be the 1st or 2nd dog of the family, he loves having attention and cuddling.  Gar is quite good on lead with a harness and in a car.

Gar is now looking for his forever home and family, a family that will give him time and patience to get used to his new home as he find new circumstances difficult initially.

 Gar will come with the full back up support of the wonderful Pointers In Need team.
